According to the article, http://ultimateclassicrock.com.....mccartney/  Linda was even nominated for an Oscar® for her co-write of "Live And Let Die." So, if she and Paul had never met, Linda would never have been an Oscar® nominee! By the way, "The Way We Were" won the award that year, over the way way better (in my opinion) "Live And Let Die." Which is… (ahem)… way uncool.

We would also lose a lot of the cool photos she took from '67 onwards - tho we would have gotten others. And there is the video footage of their last photo session at Tittenhurst in August '69, wasnt that shot by Linda?


From Joe's entry for the 22nd August 1969

Linda shot some 16mm footage on my camera. That turned out to be the last film taken.
How sweet Paul waving, shaking him head, and smiling at Linda as she films.heart

If Paul had never met Linda, she would not have gotten co-writing credits on a bunch of best-selling songs. That list, along with some other interesting things about Linda, can be read here:  

Thanks!  As a big Linda fan I am proud that I knew most of those, but there were a few that I didn't know!  a-hard-days-night-paul-7

I think it would've happened anyway. Maybe they would've overcome the whole situation eventually and maybe they would've been less bitter, but we have to remind ourselves that the Eastman/Klein thing wasn't the starting point of their fights and relationship that became worse. There were more factors. I don't think Paul would've gone with Klein if he hadn't known the Eastmans. He didn't trust Klein. Had he not known Eastman, he still wouldn't have trusted Klein. 

I agree, it still would have been a mess, even without Eastman.  

My opinion?  I think she made Paul a better person, and who knows what he would have become without her?  Maybe he would have been okay, but maybe not? 

So many love songs he wrote for her wouldn't even exist.

This reminds me of a topic I made here
